I want a representative, darn it!

So we might get Caroline Kennedy as our U.S. senator from NY. Why can't we get a representative, you know, someone who represents the interests of NYers (and not just those downstate)? Clinton carpet-bagged and spent her tenure making a presidential run. The only up-state work of hers I know is helping to keep the Niagara Falls airbase open and supporting grape growers. It would be nice if someone came along who actually, knew or cared about the constituents.

Brian Higgins 2010!

You complain about having senators? Feh.

To be fair, almost 2/3 of the population - and a larger still percentage of the lawyers, I would speculate (we are dealing with the Democratic party, after all) - live downstate.
